  2. Connect each speaker.

  • These speaker terminals carry HAZARDOUS LIVE voltage. To prevent the risk of electric shock when connecting or disconnecting the speaker cables, disconnect the power cord before touching any uninsulated parts.
  • After connecting the plugs, pull lightly on the cables to make sure that the ends of the cables are securely connected to the terminals. Poor connections can create noise and interruptions on the sound.
  • If the cable's wires happen to be pushed out of the terminals, allowing the wires to come into contact with each other, it places an excessive additional load on the amp. This may cause the amp to stop functioning, and may even damage the amp.
  • Be sure to connect wires to the correct terminal polarities (+, –) at the speaker and amplifier, or the proper surround effect will not be produced.

Wall mounting the speakers

The surround speakers have holes for mounting brackets, and depending on the speaker setup you choose, you can wall-mount the surround speakers. Refer to Wall mounting the speakers on the operating instructions of Front Surround System.

  • Make sure to tighten the supplied screw as securely as possible when attaching the bracket to the back of the speaker.

Before mounting

  • Remember that the speaker system is heavy and that its weight could cause the screws to work loose, or the wall material to fail to support it, resulting in the speaker falling. Make sure that the wall you intend to mount the speakers on is strong enough to support them. Do not mount on plywood or soft surface walls.
  • Mounting screws are not supplied. Use screws suitable for the wall material and support the weight of the speaker.

  • If you are unsure of the qualities and strength of the wall, consult a professional for advice.
  • Pioneer is not responsible for any accidents or damage that result from improper installation.
